It’s been 18 years since the death of Eazy-E but one person is not prepared to let his public image die.

E.B. Wright, the 22 year old daughter of the late rapper, is currently putting together a documentary about the life – and death – of her father, according to BET.com.  E.B., a budding rapper herself, says that his legacy has not been properly represented and she wants to change that.

“A lot of people don’t know the truth behind his death.  There’s definitely a story out there of how people think he died but a lot of it is a misconception, so I think it’s time to tell the story of exactly what happened.”

E.B. says that the documentary, tentative titled Ruthless Scandal, will have in-depth interviews with celebrities, family members, close friends and others who knew the “real” Eazy.  Further, there will be interviews from doctors and lawyers as well as documents regarding the death of the rapper. As most of us know, Eazy reportedly died as a result of complications of the AIDS virus when he was only 31 years old. His daughter hasn’t stated whether or not she accepts this but she clearly has had more questions about it as she’s grown.

E.B. also envisions how important her dad would be were he still alive:

“He started all of this, and honestly I don’t even think his impact can be limited to the West Coast.  I feel like, if my dad was alive today, he would be Jay-Z businesswise. He was a true visionary. He started the independent label, he started the idea of speaking your mind…”

Ruthless Scandal is currently slated for a 2014 release.

Were you an Eazy-E fan? Would you check out this documentary?

    That’s the girl from MTV’s My Super Sweet 16. This girl was one of the biggest, most disrespectful, ungrateful BRATS on the show! Ugh. Gawd no!

  • Tae’lurAlexis

    She’s just trying to pay tribute to her father. Wouldn’t you do the same for her own if he passed if u could? There’s nothing wrong with her doing it. You don’t have to watch the documentary or diss her dad just because of the way he died or because you didn’t think he was a n important artist. He was important to somebody…many.

  • califresh

    Yeah, he definitely was super fine–even despite being really short. Him, MJ, Bruce Leroy were my all time top crushes back in the 80s (n maybe still are).

    Please fix this. It’s not the “AIDS Virus.” HIV is the virus that can potentially lead to AIDS. Just said he died from AIDS complications.

  • IslandNat

    Living vicariously through her dad posthumously… #EpicFail

      Easy-E Jr. did the same thing. Can’t people get there identity?

    When I was working on a hip hop documentary, I started to realize how much of a visionary Eazy E was and how much he did for the hip hop game. Not a big fan of his music, can’t even lie, but I would totally watch it to hear more about him.

  • Monica

    I was a huge fan of Eazy. When he passed, it was a tremendous loss. He was a very clever and schrewed business man. Unfortunately he contracted an illness and died (it’s sad but true). The comment below stating that he is only known for getting an STD is ignorant! Is Freddy Mercury or Magic Johnson only known for contracting HIV?! Of course not. Grow up! I would definately watch a documentary about his life.

    • Actually, yes. Of course they had other accomplishments, but they are associated with their HIV/ AIDS status. Everytime someone mentions Magic Johnson, they think he was cured. You grow the f** k up.

    Eazy E will forever be one of the greatest..

  • ..

    he was sooo fine,def had a crush on him and miss him,he woulda been like dre or jay z…he taught dre how to do what he famous for

  • He will always be remembered for for STDs.

  • Chey

    She was what, 4? When her father passed? So how does she know anything about the “real” Eazy?

    • Pivyque

      Right. I could see if her mom was doing this, but with her being that age when he passed, it seems like she is just telling us what she has just been told her entire life, but it’s nice that she wants to honor her father.
